The World Justice Project is delighted to announce today—on International Women’s Day— that one World Justice Challenge 2021 prize will honor the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an inspiration to changemakers the world over.
The WJP's first-ever Ruth Bader Ginsburg Legacy Prize will go to the Challenge finalist project that best exemplifies the fight against inequality and gender-based discrimination.
The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Legacy Prize honors former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg's lifelong work in service to the causes of justice, equality, and the rule of law, and in recognition of her tremendous inspiration to WJP's mission and work. Justice Ginsburg served as an Honorary Chair of the World Justice Project from its founding and attended three of its global World Justice Forums, including keynote talks in 2013 and 2017.
